Short Film: Bruno and Juliet

Love stories are available a dime a dozen. But, even this die-hard genre needs something new now and then to make it relevant. And that’s when newer, bolder directors come into the picture. Of all the experimental pieces that we have seen, Bruno and Juliet is possibly the most experimental and bold.

The film, literally, tells a story of friendship and love between two canines – a pet dog and a stray. This is something that almost everyone has experienced in their lives  – but rarely has it been brought to screen.

What’s WOW: The very fact that the director decided to make a romance story about canines is amazing. What’s amazing is how the director succeeds in bringing out the emotion between canines. Ask directors and they will tell you that children and animals are the most difficult to shoot. In that context,  director Khawar Jamsheed, who also wrote the film has done a great job.

What’s Blah: The film has a good story and script. It also has an amazing cast, but all of it falters because of the low-tech shooting. The video quality is not up to the mark. It could have been much better.

Parting Shot:  Bruno and Juliet is a very good concept, and we’d have loved it if the film was shot with better equipment.
